Akira Takata President and CEO

Since our founding in 1990 as Japan’s first fabless maker specializing in system LSIs, MegaChips Corporation has focused its resources on research and development to hone its unique technology and placed emphasis on building a comprehensive system that plans, develops and provides system LSIs for customers. Always motivated by our desire to contribute to enhancing the competitiveness of our customers, we have combined our knowledge of applications and systems with our expertise in LSIs, thereby designing and generating outstanding system LSIs that meet the needs of customers and the times. Serving as a development partner for customers and supporting them as they overcome their problems or differentiate their products has been a great source of our growth.

As digital technology rapidly develops, industries and our way of living are undergoing great change.
As a result, the demand for electronic devices that not only high-performing, but also compact-sized and energy-efficient is increasing, and the device applications are expanding to broader areas. The need for semiconductor products as key devices is changing greatly and diversifying.
Taking these changes as opportunities for further growth, we will pursue global business development by focusing on likely areas of future expansion.

In the ASIC business, in addition to the game console, digital camera, and office machine that are our existing core fields, we will explore influential customers in new fields, both inside and outside Japan. Concretely, we will further expand the ASIC business by utilizing MegaChips’ propriety high-speed communications core technology for such industrial device fields as automotive, FA (factory automation) and robotics.
In the ASSP business, we will expand in the fields of 5G telecommunications infrastructure, automotive and IoT, with analog, digital, and MEMS technologies at the core.

In this way, the MegaChips group is pursuing its policy of sustainable growth as a global enterprise.
